The black Sony HDR-CX900 Full HD Handycam Camcorder brings broadcast-quality HD video to the palm of your hand. The 1in Exmor R CMOS sensor is approximately 8x larger than that of typical camcorders, allowing you to capture cinematic images with shallow depth of field for defocused backgrounds. The camcorder features a wide-angle Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* lens with 12x optical zoom plus 24x Clear Image digital zoom. SteadyShot image stabilization with Active Mode delivers smooth video, and 3-Way-Shake-Canceling adds electronic roll stability for even smoother results.

The HDR-CX900 is a versatile camcorder that lets you capture Full HD 1920 x 1080 video in XAVC S (up to 50 Mb/s), AVCHD, or web-optimized MP4. You can also capture high-quality 20MP still images. Frame your shots using either the large 3.5in XtraFine LCD touchscreen, or with the high-contrast 0.39in OLED EVF. For connectivity, the camcorder provides a USB 2.0 port, micro-HDMI output, and a composite video output. Built-in Wi-Fi and NFC support lets you use your smartphone or tablet to control the camera, as well as wirelessly transfer files to your mobile device for sharing and back up data on your computer.

A rechargeable lithium-ion battery pack, AC adapter, power cord, micro-HDMI cable, and a USB connection support cable come included. Also included is a lens hood, lens cap, and RMT-835 Remote Commander with battery.

1in Exmor CMOS Sensor with Direct Pixel Readout
The HDR-CX900 features Sony's first 1.0in Exmor R CMOS sensor. The back-illuminated technology improves low-light sensitivity and combines with Sony's Column A/D Conversion to reduce noise by 50%. This is great when shooting in dimly lit environments such as night landscapes or indoor scenes.

1080p Video and 20MP Still Images
The 20-megapixel CMOS sensor allows you to capture cinematic 1080p video at 24, 30, and 60 fps, and high-quality 20MP still images.

Versatile Shooting with XAVC S, AVCHD, and MP4 Codecs
The HDR-CX900 records Full HD movies in the XAVC S format, which uses MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 codec for compression while saving files in a MP4 wrapper. The highly compressed files allow for longer record times. The camcorder also records in AVCHD, providing high-quality video for HDTV playback and Blu-ray disc burning. Additionally, the camcorder can shoot MP4 HD video, which is ideal for sharing over the internet at up to 28 Mb/s. Having the ability to switch between all three of three formats makes this camcorder a versatile tool content creation. For the greatest flexibility, you can even record AVCHD and MP4 formats simultaneously.

Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* Lens with 12x Optical Zoom
The HDR-CX900 comes equipped with a Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* lens. It features a wide 35mm-equivalent focal length of 29mm, making it suitable for capturing landscapes, as well as 12x optical zoom and 24x Clear Image zoom for getting close to the action.

BIONZ X Processor Enables High-Speed 120 fps Recording
The BIONZ X Image processor enables the camcorder to create more naturally vivid and lifelike images with higher resolutions. Detail reproduction technology optimally filters edges and textures different depending on the scene. It also features area-specific noise reduction which swiftly and efficiently analyzes the subject and reduces noise. The image processor also allows you to record at 120 fps at 1280 x 720 resolution for slow-motion playback at 1/5th the speed when played back at 24 fps after post-processing.

Optical SteadyShot Image Stabilization with Active Mode
Optical SteadyShot Image Stabilization with Intelligent Active Mode is an advanced optical Image stabilization technology that corrects camera shake to capture scenes with smoothness and stability. Intelligent Active Mode analyzes video frames and provides compensation with assistance from the BIONZ X image processing engine. Whether recording movies while walking or zooming, you can capture scenes with a higher level of stability.

High-Contrast 0.39in OLED EVF
The HDR-CX900 provides a high-contrast 0.39in OLED Tru-Finder EVF which reproduces rich color and deep blacks. The optical design of the EVF utilizes four dual-surface aspherical lenses, allowing for a 33° wide viewing angle that is clear from edge to edge of the viewfinder.

Large 3.5in Xtra Fine LCD
The 3.5in Xtra Fine LCD screen features a 16:9 aspect ratio and a 921K dot resolution, delivering sharp, bright, and vivid images. The large screen allows you to compose your shots more easily, even when outdoors.

Simple Connectivity to Smartphones via Wi-Fi/NFC
Built-in Wi-Fi/NFC support enables easy connectivity with smartphones for one-touch sharing and one-touch remote control. NFC (near field communication) provides "touch connection" convenience when transferring images to Android smartphones and tablets. You simply touch your NFC-compatible device to the camcorder to establish a connection.
